"Patchwork" represents the stories and lives of women living in rural Bamberg, South Carolina during a time period of approximately 1939-1959. These God-centered women created an atmosphere that allowed the participants to help their families. Quilting was their point of focus; however this activity provided an opportunity to share their challenging stories.
Patchwork encourages us to find a way to bridge the gap between generations by sharing helpful information through conversation. Both groups the youth and the elder must be open to a two-way conversation. Being the elder does not mean you have a monopoly on teaching, the youth also have something to say. "Patchwork" says we should have the conversation.
"Inspiring intergenerational dialog about all subjects,
big and small, comfortable and painful."

"Each chapter is dedicated to the story of one of the ladies in the group.
And each story is so unique and thought-provoking."
